Gröde (Danish: Grøde, North Frisian Groue) is a municipality in the district of Nordfriesland, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. With only 11 inhabitants (six men and five women), the municipality, which is coterminous with the hallig it is situated on, has the smallest population of any municipality in Germany. The inhabitants of the island make a living off of tourism and limited agriculture. Gröde forms the smallest electoral district in the country, with the tally reported practically immediately after polls close.

Gröde belongs to the Amt of Pellworm with its seat on the larger island of Pellworm, from where a number of municipal duties are carried out.
